America’s Cup boat takes a header

One of the most spectacularly photogenic moments of the weekend on San Francisco Bay came during the America’s Cup World Series on Saturday, when an Oracle Team USA boat took a huge digger in one of the fleet races.

Despite the spectacular flop, Oracle Team USA, led by skipper Jimmy Spithill, recovered with little damage and ended up winning both of the week’s two championships, and finished in first place in the overall regatta on a tie-breaker.
